What I heard from Jesus today is: Jesus is your only hope!
What do you think of the message that Jesus is your only hope? If you are going to die in a year's time, will this message become more important to you?
Please tell me what you think after reading this historical fact of what was going to happen two years after wrote the letter to the Colossians: Colossae, Laodicea, and Hierapolis were three closely-situated cities mentioned by Paul in the New Testament, each possessing Christians.
These cities were the target of a devastating earthquake around AD 60-62, probably just after Paul wrote his letters to the Christians of that area. According to historians, all three cities were destroyed.
Realizing these words were written to Christians who may have been on the brink of disaster highlights the need that we should always be prepared to meet God.
What do you feel? Shock, sad or full of tears?
The church at Colossae started during Pauls three year ministry in Ephesus(A.D. 52-55). It was not found by Paul and Paul was never been to Colossae. It was found by Paul's apprentice Epaphras who got saved by Paul teaching and returned to his hometown and started the Colossian church. The purpose for Paul to write this letter is to tell the Colossians to hold fast to the one way of salvation in Christ, in contrast to false teaching.
But, the Colossians never knew they just had two more years to live. Do you know how long are you going to live? Remember, Jesus is your only hope!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to know that no one knows whether there is a tomorrow and that you are our only hope. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
